Pressley: We feel we can pick up a positive result

24 March 2016

Town will be hoping for a return to winning ways on Saturday

Steven Pressley feels Saturday afternoon’s game at Chesterfield is a fixture where his side can pick up a positive result.

The Cod Army have lost their last three Sky Bet League One games to Burton Albion, Walsall and Barnsley respectively, so will hope for a winning return this weekend.

Danny Wilson’s Spireites come into the game off the back of a 1-1 draw with Scunthorpe United at Glanford Park, where Jamal Campbell-Ryce earned them a point.

Pressley said: “These nine games between now and the end of the season are hugely important in our bid to survive in this division.

“We’ve got to ensure that we pick up the appropriate points along the way and obviously the Chesterfield game is one where we feel we can get a positive result.

“It’s really important that we get back to winning ways on Saturday because at this stage of the season it’s all about momentum.

“We had momentum just over two weeks ago but that has changed in the other direction recently, so we have to make sure we change that.

“We can’t concern ourselves with other teams and other positions because we’re still in a position where destiny remains in our own hands. We have to make sure it stays like that.

“In terms of results Chesterfield are very similar to us. They’ve put together some really positive results and then at times have shown inconsistency.”

Pressley has been happy with David Henen and Stefan Scougall’s contribution over the past week, and is expecting them to play a part this weekend.

“David looks much fitter than what he did on his last return and he’s a good week to ten days with us now.

“Stefan hasn’t played a lot of football recently but he’s a player that has experience at this level over the last couple of years.

“He understands the league and the demands of it, and we’re really happy with them both especially as we have players away on international duty.”
